The Situation at DeMatha

High School Insider Jeff Nelson has filed this. In not renewing the contract for coach Scott Pugh despite his team's Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship this year, DeMatha Principal Dan McMahon said, "We wanted to go in a different direction," and did not elaborate further.

The St. Albans lacrosse Web site has an excellent writeup on the win over West Genesee. It actually comes from the West Genny Web site. The box score from the Syracuse paper, such as it is, is here. And The Post's Alan Goldenbach has written this about the game: St....

Georgetown Prep's Winning Goal

For those (like me) who missed it, here is the winning goal by Georgetown Prep's Brian Casey against Landon in the fourth overtime. In particular, check out the job Billy Gribbin (#11) does in taking a couple steps back to pull his defender just far enough away from the goal...

Happy Landon-Georgetown Prep Day

Today is the regular season meeting between Landon and Georgetown Prep. It starts at 4:30 p.m. at Prep. TFBO2F will miss the game--instead, we'll be part of the joyless hysteria that is the ACC lacrosse tournament in Charlottesville. (TFBO2F misses when Prep-Landon was played on a Thursday.) The Bears (13-3)...

How the West Has Won

Georgetown Prep plays Delbarton (NJ) on Saturday in Princeton and St. Albans plays at West Genesee (N.Y.) on April 26 in games we always hoped we'd see but were never sure we would. Those rank with Mount Hebron's games against Carthage (NY) a few years ago as a sign that...

Front Page of today's Metro Section...

A very interesting and well-researched story about why lacrosse is not offered at the high school level in Prince George's and Charles counties. It reminds TFBO2F how rare it is to play Division I lacrosse after having played for a club team, i.e. non-varsity team, in high school. The most...
